Dr. Thomas Hauser is the Director of Research Computing at the University of Colorado Boulder. His team is operating a supercomputer, a research data storage service, and a friction free network for large data transfer. His group is also providing training and consulting in the area of computational science and engineering and data management to CU Boulder researchers and students. He is also one of the two executive directors of the Center for Research Data and Digital Scholarship, as well as leading the Rocky Mountain Advanced Computing Consortium (RMACC) which collaborates throughout the Rocky Mountain Region on cyberinfrastructure projects. He is the PI of the RMACC summit supercomputer funded in part by NSF. This supercomputer is a joint effort between CU-Boulder and CSU. 10% of the resources will be available to RMACC members. He is also a Co-PI on two projects related to improving the performance of a DOE CFD-DEM code, and leading the recently funded NSF Cyberteam award. This project creates a distributed team of data and workflow facilitators ("cyberteam") from the University of Colorado Boulder, the University of Utah, and Colorado State University supporting experimental and observational science (EOS) research as part of RMACC.
Prior to joining CU Boulder, Dr. Hauser was the Director of the Center for High Performance Computing at Utah State University, and Associate Director for Research Computing at Northwestern University. Dr. Hauser was also the founding director of the Center for High Performance Computing and faculty in the department of mechanical engineering at Utah State University.
Dr. Thomas Hauser earned his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering in computational fluid dynamics from the University of Technology in Munich, Germany.
